McLaren have made a remarkable development in Formula 1 in recent weeks. The Woking-based outfit had been chasing their direct rivals in the 2023 championship, but they had twice finished on the podium before the summer break.


Hungry British talent

Born on November 13, 1999, in Bristol, England, Norris is one of Formula One’s rising stars, known for his impressive drives onto the podium, and infectious personality off the circuit.

Norris’ racing career began at an early age, and he quickly established himself as a formidable talent in the junior categories. His performances in karting and various junior single-seater championships caught the attention of the motorsport world, earning him the opportunity to join the McLaren Young Driver Program in 2017.

In 2018, Norris made a name for himself in the FIA Formula 2 Championship, showing his potential with impressive race wins and consistent performances. It was clear that Norris was a driver to watch and the anticipation of his Formula One debut grew with each race.

His dream came true in 2019 when he joined McLaren as a full-time driver, partnering with experienced Spanish driver Carlos Sainz Jr in a revamped and ambitious McLaren team. Norris’ debut season in F1 was impressive.

Throughout his rookie season, Norris consistently challenged his more experienced teammate and secured several top ten finishes. His ability to get the most out of the car and his natural flair for overtaking earned him a loyal following among fans and a reputation as one of the most exciting talents on the grid.

Norris’ first Formula One podium came at the 2020 Austrian Grand Prix, where he finished an impressive third. It was a well-deserved achievement that showed his potential as a future race winner and potential championship contender. The podium celebration was marked by Norris’ trademark exuberance and infectious smile, which endeared him to fans around the world.

A string of podiums followed in 2021, but McLaren’s performance dipped coming into the 2022 season as the team struggled with the new regulations. This year appeared to be much of the same, with the McLaren cars often the slowest on the grid. But then came a major car update a few races ahead of the summer break transformed the team and Norris’s fortunes with an impressive fourth in Austria, then two second place finishes at Silverstone and Hungary.
